DONATE A BIKE - EMPLOY A TEEN!

During the month of May, the Youth Express program needs to collect 500 bikes!

  

Youth Express is a youth development and entrepreneurial training program that teaches young people real world job skills and provides employment opportunities where youth engage in high level employment activities as paid apprentices in one of our other programs and our two social enterprises – Express Yourself Clothing and Express Bike Shop.

 

At Express Bike Shop, we take donated bikes and use them to train apprentices how to fix and refurbish bikes for resale.  And youth gain valuable experience operating a small business at the same time. 

 

100% of profits are reinvested back into our youth employment programs.
